How to Ask Help For Job Searching

Savvy Community: How Do I Ask People to Help Me With My Job Search?

This anonymous posting comes from our Savvy Confessions group, where all identities are kept anonymous.

So I'm moving to a new city and I don't have a job. I hear a lot of people are hiring but I'm just wondering how to approach people without making it sound like I'm using them to find a job. Do I email them after I meet them to say I'm interested in a job at their company? How does this work? Are people just used to people asking them for jobs? How do I ask strangers without turning them off?

Share your own career- and finance-related questions anonymously in the Savvy Confessions group for a chance to be featured on SavvySugar, and be advised by fellow Savvy readers.

I say you ease into it slowly and start off with coffee and conversation before touching upon the job search topic. Alternatively, if your friend is close to a contact, you can ask your friend to ask on your behalf.
